There have been many memories throughout the years. There are a few aces and victories that stand out. But probably the biggest is getting a two on one of the toughest holes at Oakwood back in the 2001 worlds. There were very few twos on that hole and I parked it!

In The Disc Golf Bag: Drivers
Disc Comments
ESP and Z Force
The Force is my main distance driver. I carry around 4 in my bag. I'll have a couple ESP Forces which are a little more understable and will carry for my max D shots. They will also be nice for hyzer flip to flat when I need that line.

I also will have a couple of Z Forces for the more stable work. If it's windy I'll grab my pink force. My Forces have been very predictable and hold up very well under almost all wind conditions. I also use the Z Force for most of my forehand shots.
Z Surge The Surge is my go to driver and has been since they have come out. I will carry anywhere from 3 to 5 Surges depending on the course. I love the Surge because I can do anything with it up to 400 feet. I have stable Z Surges I can throw big hyzers and ones that are in various stages of wear to throw straight or hyzer flip in the woods.

I also have a Surge SS in my bag that I will throw on big anhyzers and for most of my rollers.
Z Predator
The Predator is a great disc. I'll always have 2 of them in my bag at all times. One of them is about 6 years old now and I can get a little more distance with it before it finishes hard at the end still. And then I will cycle through new ones so I always have a super stable one for spike hyzers, tough forehands, skips, grenades, etc. The Predator is a disc that can do it all.
Z Stalker
Stalkers have been a great compliment to my Buzzzes. For me I use the Stalker for anything I would like to throw a Buzzz on, but is just a little bit too far for me to reach with a Buzzz. The flight on a Stalker is darn near identical to my Buzzzes.

I will carry 2 Stalkers with me. One of them stable and one a bit understable for longer straight shots or turnovers.
Z Mantis I really feel in love with the Mantis for throwing anhyzers. With small adjustments in power you can get the Mantis to keep a continual anhyzer flying out to 400 feet or get a nice hard hyzer flip to turnover.
Z Reaper I've had a Glide in my bag since they came out as the Ace Race disc in 2004. I don't throw the Glide in the air much unless I need a shorter hard hyzer flip or shorter anhyzer.

What the Glide is great for is rollers. The Glide makes a great roller, because it goes straight. The edge on the Glide just allows it to go straight for a long time and depending on your angle to either flop down or get a little curl at the end.
In The Disc Golf Bag: Midrange
Disc Comments
Z Buzzz The best mid-range disc every made! I'll carry 3 to 4 Buzzzes with me depending on the course. A newer one to be stable. All Buzzzes start out the same. Then a couple in various stables of wear to go straight and slightly right.

The last couple of years I have started to sneak a Buzzz OS in the bag too for shorter hyzer and skip shots.
In The Disc Golf Bag: Putt and Approach
Disc Comments
Z FLX Zone The Zone might rival the Buzzz as the most used disc in my bag. Zone's are my best approach disc and short mid-range disc I can throw. By far the most predictable disc for me. I have a hard time making a mistake with a Zone.

I especially love using the Zone for forehand upshots. It always comes back for me and tends to stick right under the basket with very little skip.
D Challenger My putter of choice! While Discraft makes lots of great putters, the Challenger feels the best to me. The ones I use to put with are very firm and relatively flat. They feel great with a very neutral to slight hyzer flight path on all my putts.

I will also use my Challengers for shorter straight approaches and short straight to turn over drives. I started to even include a Z Challenger last year which I can throw a little bit harder and have it go straight with a soft finish.
